Gloucester Dixie Dot – Spinner Ring – 5th July (now moved to 2&6 Therapy Rooms)
July 5, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm£25
ONE PLACE AVAILABLE
UPDATE 15th June: I’ve been informed that 5th July is not available at the original venue so luckily I’ve been able to secure a nearby suitable place to hold the workshop: 2&6 Therapy Rooms, Wainbridge House, Shepherd Rd, Gloucester GL2 5EL .
I would like to split the class into two so that there are a maximum of four students and hold one workshop in the morning (10am) and one in the afternoon (2pm) to protect your health and safety. I have sent an email to all participants so responding to your time slot requests as soon as I receive them. Thank you, Wendy
Make your own spinner ring in sterling silver – add one two or three rings to the main shank in either of any combination of sterling silver, brass and copper. You can use bobble or twisted wire or create a faceted look on any or all of your spinner rings and this is where you can get creative!
Learn artisan silversmithing techniques and a little of the history of silver and hallmarking. Time allowing we can make more than one spinner.
Enjoy homemade cake, shortbread and refreshments whilst you work.
At the end of the workshop you’ll not only have some lovely personalised jewellery to take away, but also a huge sense of well being, pride and achievement.
The cost of the workshop is £78 which includes everything you need plus homemade cake, coffee, teas. Pay £25 now to spread the cost and the balance of £53 on the day.
There is plenty of free parking outside.
If you are making your ring or bangle for someone else it’s important you try to find out their size...
Bring either a ring that fits the person with you, or get their ring size measured at a jeweller, or wrap a study piece of wire around their finger and twist. It should go on and off easily. Bring the “ring” with you on the day.
